A message from a previous client:

It was a pleasure working with Mr. Patrick. To begin, he was very informative. Even though I was upset when we first met, Mr. Patrick was able to clearly explain exactly what would and might occur as a result of my legal situation. This was a great comfort to me.

During the entire process, Mr. Patrick made himself available to me day or night, weekday or weekend. Another great comfort through these upsetting times.

At the end of the day, Mr. Patrick did exactly as he promised. He was genuinely caring and took the time to listen. I would recommend Mr. Patrick to anyone who needs an attorney. Thank you, Mr. Patrick.
